Renault has been optimising existing safety systems and developing new ones for more than 50 years. The brand has filed over 2,000 safety patents since 1970.
The Human First programme, launched in 2023, presents all the Renault Group’s safety initiatives to the general public. These actions are the result of collaboration between engineers, safety experts, product managers, the LAB and first-aiders (firefighters).
This approach, coupled with recent technological developments such as AI, now makes it possible to Renault to stand out, in order to protect not only motorists, but all road users around them.
The ‘Safety score’ will help analyse driving data using sensors located on the vehicle.
This device will process road and traffic data to inform drivers of potential risks on their route and will give real-time warnings on danger-prone areas.
A fail-safe mechanism will take trigger automatically in the event of a clear and present danger (a far too dangerous turn, loss of steering wheel control for a prolonged period, drowsiness, etc.). The vehicle will then slow down and return to a safe driving mode.
It helps fire-fighters put out accidental battery fires. The access considerably reduces response time (from nearly 2 hours to only a few minutes).
A QR code that fire-fighters can use to identify a vehicle and access its structural information. Renault Group has trained fire-fighters in 15 European countries on how to use the code, while also donating several hundred vehicles for them to use in their training programs.
